There were a few posts earlier in the year about the temporary disappearance of the SSBR website.
This is just to remind everyone that the SSBR site is now up and running again and still has all its mine of barge information. Many thanks to John White for persevering with it.
The website’s address is:- https://www.sailingbargeresearch.org.uk/
Just 7 days to go before The Thames Sailing Barge Trust and the Society for Sailing Barge Research hold an Archive Thames Sailing Barge Film Evening on Saturday 11th March at Maldon Town Hall, Market Hill, Maldon.
Some of the films will not have been shown before.
The event is to raise funds for the SSBR and Thames Sailing Barge Trust.
Tickets are still available in advance and cost £7.00 per person. Or on the evening they can be purchased for £8.00.
Doors open at 7:00 pm and the film show starts at 7:30 pm. There will be a real ale bar and teas and coffee. We will also hold a raffle.
To obtain tickets visit the Maldon Tourist Information Office, Wenlock Way, Maldon, or they can be obtained by post by sending a cheque payable to Thames Sailing Barge Trust and a self addressed envelope to: John Rayment, 12 Wisdoms Green, Coggeshall, Colchester. Essex CO6 1SG.
Postal applications need to arrive before the 7th March, so tickets can be returned.
Thank you for your support.
